Dear Mailman Users:
My name is Martin Streicher, and I am the Editor for Open Source books
at Apress (http://www.apress.com). I am considering publishing a book
on Mailman and would like to hear your opinions.
Briefly, the book would be very focused on Mailman, would be about
150-200 pages, and would sell for less than $20. The book would be very
hands-on, something you would keep in your lap and work through as you
installed and configured Mailman with the MTA and web browser of your
choice. Then the book would switch to a problem-solution section,
useful for when you are troubleshooting or adding features to your
configuration, or trying to help users manage their Mailman accounts.
1/ Is such a book needed, and what is it's potential?
2/ If it is needed, what information should it include? What problems
come up time and again?
3/ Should it only be about Mailman, or should it include ezmlm,
Mailman, and Majordomo?
4/ Finally, what other topics in system administration might fit this
format -- short, project-oriented, solutions -- well?
Thanks for your consideration and I look forward to your replies.
Please send replies to martin at apress.com. I will post a summary of all
replies so as to share the info, but not clutter the list in the
